Anyone have a job or know anyone who's a Transportation Security Officer (TSO) w/ the Transportation Security Administration at the California airports...specificaly the city of Ontario, CA (NOT Canada)?

Is the initial 2 1/2 hr exam something you can study for? I read something about there being more exams too, how are they? How's the job?



Any info you can give will be appreciated!

I think for the 2 1/2 hour exam they put you in the little room where you watch images from your fellow applicants walking thru the body scan machine. There are two big buttons a blue one for male and pink for female and you just have to keep pressing for the correct gender based on the detailed outlines you see.

Shouldn't be too hard unless you there is a hermaphrodite in your class of applicants, that would be like the "Kobayashi Maru" simulation from Wrath of Khan where there is no solution.

Good luck!
